Tyson Chandler may potentially find himself back with the Dallas Mavericks — but the role remains to be seen

Could the former NBA champion find himself back on the Mavericks roster? As fun as that sounds, that is likely to be a long shot. What isn’t a long shot is the opportunity to be assigned as a coach, or even in a player-development role.

As of now, nothing is official. Although, it’s only a matter of time until the new head coach Jason Kidd wants to bring in the former Defensive Player of the Year for a specific role.

Kidd welcomed Chandler into the “Mavs Legends Program,” that owner Mark Cuban created. That allowed Chandler to get “his feet wet” for coaching and get a taste of what it’s about.

“For me, I just want to help in any way I can,” Chandler said, per Dwain Price of Mavs.com. “Jason called me and said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, “Nothing much. Working out.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, come by.’ So I came by and I’m just trying to lend my knowledge and help any way I can.”

Chandler last played during the 2019-20 season with the Houston Rockets. He has played for many different teams, but none are more primary than his time in Dallas. Chandler won a ring with Kidd and the Mavericks and solidified himself into the team’s history books.

It makes a lot of sense to bring in Chandler and allow him to coach up the frontcourt, as he was one of the best to do it in his generation. Chandler has already been working with the Mavs big men and raved about their potential.

“I like what we have,” Chandler said. “Boban brings so much size, Willie is athletic (with) great movement, Dwight Powell has been in here every single day tightening up his skills. I think he presents something completely different – that kind of hybrid center that’s now in the league.”

The former NBA all-star has a lot to bring to the table and that should please Luka Doncic. We all know Dallas can score a ton of points, but if the defense improves, watch out for the Mavs.
